Hey hey and HAPPY FRIIIIIIIIDAY!!

I saw this cute little survey over on Amanda’s blog the other day and I thought it’d be perfect for a little Friday fun so I stole not only the post idea, but her little dog too the title too! As you guys know, I’m a total sucker when it comes to surveys…the funny thing is I always think these things will be short and sweet…yet they always end up taking me HOURS to write! Go figure!

Name your Favorite…

Person…

Selfie

It may be a little narcissistic, but I’d have to say ME! Not all the time of course, but hey, if you can’t love yourself, how can you love others? Plus, I can keep myself entertained for hours (I thank being an only child for eight years for that)…and with a schedule like mine, that is MORE than necessary!

Color…

GREEEEEEEEEN! Ya know, like broccoli! 😉

Food…

Pizza

Has been and ALWAYS WILL BE, pizza!

Smell…

I love, love, LOVE the smell of fresh ground coffee, but lately, when I’ve been out on my walks at the park, I’ve been catching whiffs of honeysuckle…and seriously? HEAVEN!

Book…

It’s been years since I’ve picked it up, but ever since I first read Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers, I’ve always said it was my favorite. It’s a relatively large book (for me anyway) and I have to say it was a proud moment when I finished it in ONE weekend…yes, it’s THAT good!

Movie…

I’ve said for years that my favorite movie is 10 Things I Hate About You since the besties and I can pretty much quote it word for word, but as far picking one to better gauge my personality, I’d have to go with Monty Python and the Holy Grail…which my dad and I can pretty much quote word for word! 😉

Time of day…

Dusk Sunset

Dusk. There’s just something about watching the sun settle slowly into the horizon and feeling all the day’s energy winding down. Well all the energy but mine since technically a sunset is a night-shift worker’s sunrise!

Day of the week…

I never EVER thought I’d say this, but…Thursday…as in the day that used to be the bane of my existence since it’s the day I use to shift my sleep schedule back to “normal” hours for the weekend. A few weeks ago though, I found a good groove…only allowing myself to sleep for 2-3 hours, then I go to yoga, and then…I spend the rest of the day basking in my yoga glow! 😀

Thing to do when I’m bored…

Instagram…gets me EVERY time…notice all these pictures are square? Not a coincidence!

Celebrity…

You guys know I don’t really do the whole celebrity thing, but I guess if I had to choose just one, I’d say Robert Downey Jr…manly, oh yes, he’s manly inDEED, but I mean MAINLY because I love his “don’t give a fuck” attitude!

Drink…

Coffee

Coffee…especially when it tastes like COOKIES…and especially when you’re a sensitive sistah like me and have to cherish the ONE cup you allow yourself to have a day so you don’t ping from wall to wall!

TV show…

As far as a show I feel I could watch over and over again, I guess I’d have to go with Scrubs. I mean, I did spend an entire day in x-ray school recreating the image they use in the intro!

Fruit…

Persimmons! Oh how I love those little squatty spheres of deliciousness! Now if only we could do something about extending persimmon season…I definitely did NOT get my fill this year…even with the ungodly amount that came home with me from ATL!

Vegetable…

Kabocha

C is for CKabocha! Roasted, steamed, baked into donuts, dipped in ketchup, dipped in nut butter, eaten straight out of the fridge…I mean, seriously? I have no idea how I ever lived a whole 26 years without it!

Store…

TJ Maxx

As if there was ever ANY doubt! Now, if only I could get them to pay me for all the advertising I give them! 😉

Workout…

I’ve gone through a LOT of phases when it comes to working out. There was that time I was all about running, then I was the “buff chick” in the weight room, and then…then there was yoga. I’d like to think this is not another phase, but a discovery of something that will forever change my life. Never have I had a workout affect me so much at my core. I may joke about drinking the “Koolaid” but truth be told, there is nothing that has ever compared!

Quote…

“I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.” – John Burroughs

Boy’s/Girl’s name…

I’ve always loved the name Parker for a boy and Bailey for a girl…even if I feel like a total hipster for saying that! 😉

Potato chip flavor…

I’ll take tortilla chips over potato chips ANY day, but if I had to pick potato chips, I’d say give me some plain Ruffles…with ridges…and a big ass bowl of French onion dip! YUM!

Meal of the day…

Birthday Cake Protein Pancakes

Uh duhhhh…BREAKFAST…which is why I love to have it ANY time of day…and especially when I can pretend that EVERY day is my birthday!

Ice cream flavor…

Cake Batter Batter from Cold Stone Creamery. Allow me to paint you a picture of this frozen confection perfection: Rich, buttery cake batter ice cream FILLED to the brim with bites…no, MEGA CHUNKS of sweet chocolate chip cookie dough and gooey fudgey brownie pieces. Are you drooling yet? I know I am! And it’s worth every bit of gastrointestinal distress due to my lactose-challenged gut!

Season…

Fall! Or I guess I should say more of that in between season towards the end of summer and beginning of fall where the days are still long, but the nights start to get that slight chill in the air…you know, the ones that make you wanna get a good fire going and bust out the marshmallows!

Dessert…

CookieWhen it comes to dessert…as in after a meal, I will almost always go for fruit over chocolate, but as a snack…a midday nibble…or if someone happens to leave a tray unattended…it’s ALL about the cookies!

Lifehack…

My mama taught me this one a lonnnnnnnnng time ago and I can’t tell you how many times it’s saved me: When boiling water, place a wooden spoon in a pot and your water will never boil over! Oh and I also like throwing spaghetti against the wall to see if it’s done…but that’s probably just because I’m actually three years old and very VERY easily amused. 😉

What are some of your favorites?
